First use a tar&wax remover to clean the hull off with,if not use denatured alco then wet sand the hull with 320-400 grit paper and use a red scotch bright pad to sand areas that you can get a sand paper too, then prime it if it has and chips in the paint. if not and the surface is good the just seal it and paint it. I use automotive paints that you use a spray gun with. I spray urothanes. Paints I use dupont NASON and NAPA's crossfire base coat clear coat system.
